Along with swapping carbon for oxygen as a byproduct of the production process, the technology is also expected to reduce costs by 15-percent.
The JV also plans to invest $C40 million in the USA to support the supply chain for the proprietary anode and cathode materials. The provincial government of Quebec will have a 3.5% equity stake in the joint venture, with the remainder split equally between Alcoa and Rio Tinto.
If the development can lower the price of aluminum for automakers, it's possible they'd expand the use of it besides what's already been projected for the collision fix industry.
"It builds on the key role aluminium has to play in driving human progress, by making products infinitely recyclable, stronger, lighter and more fuel efficient", Jacques said. Former Rio Tinto head of technology, research and development, and automation programs Vincent Christ will become the CEO of Elysis.
"The technology is a tremendous innovation for the aluminum industry with the potential to make our products even more sustainable", Beck said. "We are proud to be part of this ambitious new project". When it works, the new process eliminates greenhouse gas emissions from the process.

"Today's announcement will create and maintain thousands of jobs for Canadians, significantly reduce Canada's carbon footprint, and further strengthen the aluminum industry in North America".
